Mardi Gras Outlet's Bead Size Guide

Millimeter Measurement

All of our round throw beads will list a millimeter (mm) measurement which is the diamater of each bead on the necklace. Because computer screens show images at varying sizes, it is impossible to show pictures on our website at "actual size." However, we have created a printable size guide which (presuming your printer does not resize the image) should be accurate. We have also included a picture of three popular sizes with some U.S. coins alongside for reference (see right).

Approximate Metric to Standard Conversions
7mm = 0.27" 10mm = .39" 16mm = .55"

Strand Length

The length of the necklace listed is the length of the full strand. If you were to cut the necklace and measure from end to end, you would get the strand length. However, when the necklace is still in one piece, it will measure a little less than half the listed length (i.e. a 33" strand hangs 16" from the back of your neck). The following picture should help you visualize the various strand lengths.
